As The Hill’s Alexander Bolton writes, “President Obama received a slap from members of his own party Tuesday as the Senate voted to block his $447 billion jobs package. The jobs plan, which the president has spent much of the last month touting on a cross-country tour, fell well short of the 60 votes it needed to proceed.”

Chairman Gleason released the following statement: “Bob Casey just can’t seem to kick his addiction to spending. Senator Casey promised that President Obama’s first stimulus would fix our roads and bring new jobs to our Commonwealth. Today, Pennsylvanians understand better than anyone that they were wrong.  Whether through their endless campaigning or stimulus spending, one thing is clear: President Obama and Bob Casey are more concerned about saving their own jobs than creating for the over 500,000 Pennsylvanians who don’t have one.”

RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer also put out a memo: It’s the Democrats Who Stand in the Way of Stimulus 2.0
